Lana Del Rey Poses For ‘Complex,’ Talks ‘Lust For Life’
Another day, another stunning photo shoot from Lana Del Rey. She is a sultry film-noir siren for Complex, oozing old Hollywood glamor in a series of shadowy portraits. The 32-year-old also speaks to the publication about her new LP, Lust For Life. For starters, she throws a little shade at that radio-conquering “Summertime Sadness” remix and addresses her move away from (very) dark-pop. “I felt like I had kind of said a lot and done a lot through the records,” Lana muses. “I felt like two years of recording really dark tunes would not be fun.”
The “Love” singer also opens about her new political stance. “On the last records I needed to look inward to figure out why things had gone so far down one path, and then I kind of came to the end of my self-examination and I naturally was looking at everything else,” Lana reveals. “Also, with Obama as the president, me and everybody I know, I think we felt very safe and protected, felt like we were being viewed the way we wanted to be viewed, in terms of the world. So there wasn’t as much to say except, like, look how far we’ve come.”
